The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and Childline have created a new tool for under-18s who want to report, and to have removed, pictures or videos of themselves.
The service aims to help children who have been groomed, or whose partners have posted photos of them online. The Report Remove tool can be used by any young person under 18 to report a nude image or video of themselves that has appeared online. The IWF will then review this content and work to have it removed if it breaks the law.
